“No expectations, No disappointments”
Often we do come across this quotation in our daily life and more or less we do agree with it at some point in our life.
Most of the times, it is said that we should not keep any expectations from the person we love. Love if pure has no expectation. But is it always so?
I do not think so. The expectation in a relationship is a must. Without expectations, a relationship would become static rather than dynamic. The expectation is nothing but a silver lining of hope.
It is mostly believed that we expect from whom we love, but in reality, deep down in our unconscious minds, we expect from a few whom we think loves us as well.
Don’t we expect from the Almighty that at the end of every crisis or struggle in life He would do everything best for us? I think such expectation from the Almighty gives hope for better days in times of hardship. I think realistic expectations won’t bring disappointment, whereas unrealistic expectations might.
Yes, it is true that expectations are mostly asked of others and that is where the chances of its failure remain. What we need to learn is to know the difference between a realistic and an unrealistic desire, rather than preventing ourselves from keeping expectations in a relationship. I also believe that, if we totally stop expecting from our loved ones in a relationship then all the ingredients of love, trust and hope would melt away in time.
